In this paper a linear cavity Erbium doped fiber (EDF) laser based in a fiber Bragg grating (FBG) and a fiber optical loop mirror with a high birefringence fiber in the loop (Hi-Bi FOLM) is used as a strain sensor. The Fabry-Perot cavity is formed by the FBG and the Hi-Bi FOLM, used as a measurement system of strain variations produced on the FBG, used as a strain sensor device. Usually, fiber laser sensor experimental setups determine the measured variable magnitude by using of an optical spectrum analyzer (OSA). Hi-Bi FOLM transmission spectrum wavelength displacement by fiber loop temperature variations measurement can be an attractive application exploiting the characteristics of FOLM transmission spectrum behavior due to Hi-Bi fiber loop temperature variations to determine the FBG strain applied through the maximal optical power monitoring by simple use of a photodetector and a temperature meter.
